One Monkey Don't Stop No Show

Is this the best feature profile to ever run
in Fortune Magazine?

Author Carol Loomis says that Rick Corman, 
head of the R.J. Corman Railroad Group,
is the most unforgettable executive she's ever met. 

And she's been writing for Fortune for 50 years.

"A "go-getter" by the description of many, including 
even himself, he steadily picked up construction jobs 
and gained a reputation for fast, expert service. 
It also helped that most people simply liked him, 
sensing his innate intelligence, quickly learning that 
he was totally honest, enjoying his openness and 
humor and boisterous, cackling laugh."

He's survived multiple myeloma for more than a decade.
